I got a call today from the Bilbray campaign, dialing me up from Del Mar (858-617-XXXX according to the caller id). A young man asked me something that was hard to understand because the voice quality of the call was garbled. I thought he asked if I was supporting Brian Bilbray, but in hindsight, I think he must have been asking if I would like to hear a message from the Congressman. Then a recorded message from Bilbray started, again very garbled, although I could still tell it was Bilbray, having heard him in person. I just hung up, a little frustrated.
I took to Twitter to voice my complaint.
Since then, I have heard nothing from the campaign. I have noticed that big businesses monitor social media and often respond to legitimate complaints very quickly; but apparently this is not so with this campaign. I am posting about this because I support Bilbray, and just want him to run a better campaign. Seems that monitoring social media and monitoring the quality of one’s phone bank would be helpful to that end.
